Filter Tips

Volume capacities from 10 to 1,200 µL

Biohit, Neptune, NJ, unveils a new line of filter tips that can improve sample integrity and safety, and minimize contamination risks. They can be used in applications including molecular biology, microbiology, and cell culture, as well as in radioactive work. The higher filter positioning in the new filter-tip models prevents the liquid sample from touching the filter, enabling safer pipetting in reverse and multidispensing modes. The filter tips cover the volume range from 0.1 to 1,200 µL and include new sizes up to 1,200-µL volume capacities. They are packed in color-coded single-tray boxes and wrapped in airtight plastic, which is then electron-beam sterilized with the tip size ID printed on the sterilization indicator.
